Although all pencils provide gray scale and shady color, but most commonly known pencils used for sketching is either Graphite or Charcoal pencil. Graphite pencils come in a variety of grades and are ideal for more complex drawings that demand finer detail. Charcoal is great for sketching and getting those very dark values, but it's a lot deeper and rougher than graphite, and it's a bit more prone to smudge. Moreover for thin lines , sometimes mechanical pencils are also used.
The potential of the graphite pencil to create a realistic and detailed sketch is widely recognised. The graphite pencil's smudging abilities will allow to add in-depth perspective and beautify the artwork.
Depending on the pencils and their smudging abilities the pencil sketching give rises to many different types of art forms commonly known as Graphite Art, Doodle Art, Charcoal Paintings and Optical illusions like anamorphic illusion or 3D art etc.
